Section 1: Background
---------------------

Atomic Wasteland 2098 is an alternate Wizardry scenario to the Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord.

Atomic Wasteland 2098 was made by Dan Gartung & Ken Stark.


Section 2: How to start the game
--------------------------------

Download the game disks using a web browser from either:

     a) http://www.zimlab.com/wizardry/mods/atomic.htm

     or

     b) ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/images/games/rpg/wizardry/atomic_wasteland/

Making a workable scenario could be quite challenging as
you have to have all the right disks with the right
versions in the right order. Even if you follow the
instructions, this could be a daunting task.

Therefore I've made that step for you so that you are good
to go without frustrations and wasting a lot of time.

- First, ensure the following files are read-only:
  Wizardry-Atomic-Wasteland-2098-Boot.dsk
  Wizardry-Atomic-Wasteland-2098-Scenario-Master.dsk

- Second, start the game:
  1) Boot with the Wizardry-Atomic-Wasteland-2098-Boot.dsk
  2) Choose options 'S' to start the game.
  3) Insert the
     Wizardry-Atomic-Wasteland-2098-Scenario-Master.dsk disk
     and press Return (Enter).
  4) Insert the
     Wizardry-Atomic-Wasteland-2098-Scenario-Duplicate.dsk disk
     and press Return (Enter).

- Third, documentation:
  The AtomicWasteland2098.dsk program disk used to create
  the scenario contains a document with a back story that is
  not easily accessible. You'll find a copy of what that
  document contains in the
  Wizardry-Atomic-Wasteland-2098-Docs.txt file.

- Fourth, Atomic Wasteland 2098 program disk:
  Even if the scenario has been created already as per
  above, please do boot the AtomicWasteland2098.dsk disk to
  see the artwork and credits.


Section 3: Walkthrough
